I had an awesome experience volunteering at the the hostel that I even extended my stay. It was my first ever WP experience and I really enjoyed the time and fun memories I had with the host, my volunteer co-workers and travelers I met while I was there at the hostel and exploring PR. Walid is an outstanding friendly host. I passionately enjoyed working with him and the job he assigned me to do helping him make his job easier to make the hostel run smoothly and create a good experience for guests. I enjoyed it all and wished I could stay longer. I'm gonna miss it all. Good times!

Amazing decision to do it at Villa Estha! Loved this place, the people and the experience of exploring Puerto Rico!!! I was working mainly at the bar and it was relatively easy. The owners of the Bar (Walid and Rendal) are so nice and caring you can ask them anything if you need help. The hostel is very close to the beach and to the Party Zone so everything can be reached quickly.

I am so happy to have picked Villa Estha as my first worldpackers trip. I felt welcomed from the moment I arrived. Walid, Stoney, Gen, and Randall were all amazing and super sweet! They are so supportive and are always there if you need anything. You are able to work your shifts and still be able to explore the island on your free time. I'll miss everyone there and the volunteers :,)
